Philips has entered the games earphones market with three new models now accessible in the Netherlands and some European areas, that are additionally going to the UK later in Q1.
Sitting at the head of the range are the Philips ST702 genuine remote earbuds, with a couple of extravagant accessories for the individuals who lead a more dynamic way of life. What’s more, we got the chance to have a hear them out during a committed Philips occasion in Amsterdam.
TP Vision, the producer behind the Philips TV and now sound brand in a few areas, including Europe, is playing get up to speed with regards to earphones. Yet, 2020 will end up being a major year with a reasonable not many items arranged.
The ST702 genuine remote buds are a decent sign of its expectations. While equaling Apple AirPods and a few other well known TWS earphones available, at around the €199 value point, they offer something marginally unique.

That is on the grounds that they are basically intended for rec center and running use, with IPX5 water and sweat sealing and rubberised eartips to keep them solidly set up while dynamic.
Unquestionably, in our testing (with no genuine exercise conceivable at that point) they remained in our ears serenely. Truth be told, in spite of the fact that we don’t know of the specific load at present, every earpiece is so light we scarcely even saw them in our ears, save for the music playing.

Likewise, the charging case that the ST702 buds come in has an UV cleaning capacity to eliminate microorganisms when shut – helpful after an extraordinary exercise.
Every earpiece is equipped for as long as six hours of music playback. The charging case stretches out that to 18 hours, with two entire charges ready to be put away in it.
It likewise accompanies quick charge capacity, giving 1.5 long stretches of playback time for only 15 minutes of charging.
There is a touch sensor on the earphones, with taps controlling music and calling usefulness. Aside from that, they are kept straightforward – no ANC nor much customisation at this cost.
For our listening test we went through a few MQA tracks, streamed utilizing Tidal over Bluetooth from an iPhone 11 Pro Max. We plumped for Price’s 1999 to get a thought of bass reaction, a 2019 remaster of The Beatles’ Something, and another remastered exemplary in The Kinks’ Shangri-La.
The last two gave us a decent impression of dividing and clearness, particularly at higher frequencies, in spite of the fact that we needed to up the volume extensively to get the vast majority of them.
The bass in 1999 was somewhat quieted, in case we’re being straightforward. Once more, volume was critical, however you shouldn’t expect a Beats-style pound or the snort of more costly other options. We guess this is a reaction of creating such little, agreeable TWS earphones – there’s not a ton of room for the 6mm neodymium acoustic drivers to get that extra whomp.
We’ll discover more in an appropriate audit test, not least to perceive how they adapt to more encompassing commotion in a rec center or occupied road condition. However, at any rate the lucidity of vocals were unhindered by enthusiastic bass, and many may incline toward that at any rate.
Our testing period was dreadfully short to increase an appropriate understanding into how the Philips ST702 really perform, in noisier conditions as well, yet we love the possibility of the UV cleaning and IPX5 sealing.
Considering the vast majority of the individuals we’ve seen looking for some kind of employment are utilizing non-sport-driven reciprocals, for example, Apple’s unique AirPods, these could be appealing to the individuals who pay attention to their exercises. Particularly at the cost.
We anticipate giving them a legitimate street test in the coming weeks.
